As the weather seems to stabilize, and the sun stays out for longer, certain climbing areas become more consistently enjoyable here in the Northwest. One of those areas is just across the border from us, in Squamish, BC. I really cannot do Squamish justice in one paragraph, nor does this video do it justice in four and a half minutes. However, just trust me when I say Canada really takes care of their parks, and Squamish rocks. Here is a clip put together from shots taken at last weekend's mountain festival.
While we are talking about climbing in other countries, may as well stick with the theme and go with this hilarious video from Australia. Cedar Wright, the same guy who made the previous video, has a little too much time on his hands. However, he ends up making pretty solid videos, and it seems like he climbs pretty darn hard. If you can drone out the music, you'll notice some pretty stellar climbing going on, and may just be inspired to renew that passport.
